    USA Today Inside Slant for 10-10-06


    McNeil has been impressive with a broken hand and this broken bone looks to not affect his playing time, I wonder how good he will be with two hands???

    I wish that the Chargers would use LT and Turner as a combo in the backfield like say....maybe... Byner and Mack...

    I wonder if Volek will start crying soon like he did in Tenn...

    Has anyone heard why Florence sat out some of the game in Balt.? He has played well...are they just trying to let Cromartie get a foothold in the backfield?

    Is this the same hand as in the preseason??

    I wouldn't show too much of that combo, we'll need it in Feb. against the Bears :tup:

    I'm not too worried about Volek making the 2nd string. He still has to learn this offense.

    I think there was a clash with the HC, 'specially after the Titans drafted Young 1st.

    Anahoo, different circumstances here...plus he's onna team goin deep in the playoffs vs getting his brains beat in every weekend.

    I'm sure he was pissed. He had been waiting to get his shot to lead that team. Maybe he thought he was going to pull a brees and keep young on the bench for a while. But Tenn. did make it pretty clear to McNair what their future was going to be, so...:unsure:

    Volek will be elevated to second string as soon as our playoff run begins
    No question

    btw the 747 is showing some great toughness with two hands busted

    Actually, from what it appears, from all the talk by ESPN and NFL Network, it was a combination of factors that led to McNair and Volek leaving. Mainly Norm Chow.

    They were talking about McNair leaving especially in last night's Ravens-Broncos game. How all that stuff transpired while Jeff Fisher was away, and it was the Titans management and Norm Chow that caused it.
